1. Keeping Up Traditions

MARKS & SPENCER CHRISTMAS

With decadent regency feels, this traditional style is here to stay. Combining rich, classic colours – specifically reds and greens – heritage tartans and hints of golds, this look is a failsafe and the epitome of olde world Christmas. Picture a tree laden with bows and baubles, ribbon-bound presents below and a roaring fire to complete your costume drama-style room.

2. Winter White

THE WHITE COMPANY CHRISTMAS

The all-white winter wonderland is super luxe; it’s chic, minimal and the perfect hit of glamour. Very much for the person overwhelmed by gaudy brights and neon lights. Like a snow-covered landscape, this wash of pale shades and shimmering silvers is serene and calm. Indulge your inner ice queen, with ceramic doves, feathers and crystal ornaments.

3. Rainbow Brights

JOHN LEWIS CHRISTMAS

Not for the faint-hearted, this circus of colours is loud, bold and fabulous. Look out for rich jewel tones or neon hues. Use eye-catching shades to liven up dark rooms or bring warmth to otherwise cold corners. Traditionally, Christmas is all about the kaleidoscope of colours, so you will never be short on choice. More is definitely more for this trend.

4. Golden Hour

COX & COX CHRISTMAS

Much like the Instagrammer’s favourite hour, this Christmas trend will light up your living room with shimmering shades of gold. It’s all about high-end elegance with an abundance of sparkle and the most flattering metallic sheen. Think elegant bars and rooms dripping with glamour; perhaps a hint of the Great Gatsby, a glitzy lady with a cocktail in hand or our late Queen’s royal jewels to inspire. Simply put, go for the gold.

5. Retro Kitsch

Dobbies Festive Dreaming Retro Lights

Fun and most definitely not too serious, the obsession with mid-century-inspired, quirky decor continues. Harking back to simpler times, these designs encapsulate fifties americana – tree-topped vintage cars, record players and santas in sunglasses. We adore the nostalgia and the explosion of colours, not to mention the hints of golds and silvers.

6. Inspired By Nature

MARKS & SPENCER CHRISTMAS

As we all try to make sense of this turbulent world, it’s no surprise we’re looking to nature for a sense of calm. Designers are bringing the outside in and in true Nordic-style, we’re welcoming it into our homes. Expect decorations in the form of acorns, pine cones and leaves or woodland animals, like owls, foxes and squirrels. Colours are pared-back, often minimal, giving this trend a Skandi vibe.
